Christine Burton, superintendent of schools, said, “Mr. Connolly’s experience as both a supervisor and Vice Principal has afforded him the experience to bring ideas from Madison to enhance the culture, schedule, technology and programs at the Middle School. John brings an understanding and the experience of the high school to the middle school level, as well as the perseverance and problem solving abilities that will serve him well as the Millburn Middle School Principal.”

Mueller comes to Wyoming School from the Randolph Schools, where she has been vice-principal of Fernbrook and Shongum Schools since 2013.  Prior to that administrative role, also in Randolph, she was the elementary supervisor of Media Specialists, as well as an elementary school teacher (2000-2013, grades 1, 2 & 4). She earned her B.S. in Elementary Education from Kutztown University. She has also earned her Masters in Education and an M.A. in Educational Leadership from the College of Saint Elizabeth.

Burton said, “We are pleased to have Kristin Mueller as the new Principal of Wyoming School. With more than 16 years in education, she has a wealth of experience in curriculum and instruction in the elementary classroom. She has a very supportive nature about how she approaches her work with staff, students, and parents. She is a calm, confident leader who understands the importance of having a structured approach to her work and using data to inform it.”
Burton added, “We look forward to having Mr. Connolly and Ms. Mueller join our leadership team. With these key positions now set, we are continuing to interview for the positions of Middle School Assistant Principal and Instructional Supervisor, and have confidence that we have found the right leaders in place for both schools.”
